Giraffe on a Bicycle Review

Books for Babies and Toddlers Featured Books for 3+ readers

Not since Mrs Armitage on Wheels has a bike ride been the occasion of such wild and inventive hilarity and excitement! Monkey finds a bicycle (actually, he pinches it – we see him do it on the endpapers) and giraffe knows how to ride – well, sort of. After some graphic wobbles they career through the jungle picking up a variety of passengers along the way, until the inevitable crash! Julia Woolf’s illustrations are bold and bright, full of spontaneity and originality and never before have so many jungle creatures balanced on a bike! There’s another joke just for us on the final endpaper too, when the monkeys return the bike to its original owner. Great fun! ~ Andrea Reece

Giraffe on a Bicycle Synopsis

Monkey has found a bicycle. Luckily giraffe knows how to ride it...sort of! But when a tentative tiger, three mischievous monkeys and a very flappy flamingo join in the fun, things start getting a little crowded. And with a whole host of other jungle animals keen to climb aboard, monkey and giraffe could be in for a very bumpy ride!
